Everybody tells me I should stay away from you "Look around your life and you will find somebody new" It's been a year of going nowhere and stumbling in the dark It's time I made my mind up, baby, and listened to my heart And I know right now And I know deep down I'm better off without you I'm better off without you Maybe we should end it, baby? Maybe we stay friends? 'Cause something tells me it's too broken For time to ever mend It's been a year of going nowhere and stumbling in the dark It's time I made my mind up, baby, and listened to my heart And I know right now And I know deep down I'm better off without you I'm better off without you

Walking Away 03:53
I won't ask for roses I can live through pain I won't ask for anything else but to hold you once again With you I've fed my hunger With you I've freed my soul The troubles I have carried around - I have left them all behind The narrow streets of false denial A jealous mind of hopeful dreams The darkened hall of untold feelings I'm walking away from these The storm is almost over The battles I have won Looking back I can't forget the words that I have sung The narrow streets of false denial A jealous mind of hopeful dreams The darkened hall of untold feelings I'm walking away from these I won't ask for roses I can live through pain I won't ask for anything else but to hold you once again The narrow streets of false denial A jealous mind of hopeful dreams The darkened hall of untold feelings I'm walking away from these

Where's the boy I used to know The one who said, he loved me so? That gentle touch, where did it go? Now all I see is you Where's the boy who held my hand And when I cried would understand? A glowing life, we had it planned Now all I see is you Where's the boy I used to love Singing to the stars above? In his place, a man I barely recognise anymore Where's the boy I used to love Singing to the stars above? In his place, a man I barely recognise anymore Where's the boy I used to know The one who said, he loved me so? That gentle touch, where did it go? Now all I see is you

Para Los Dos 02:10
Llegó, llegó el invierno El frío al despertar La nieve a tu portal Y ella no está Después, de la tormenta La calma volverá Las cosas volverán A su lugar Deja que rompa con tu soledad Las heridas sanarán Si tú, si tú te acercas Las penas dormirán La luna brillará Para los dos Deja que rompa con tu soledad Las heridas sanarán Si tú, si tú te acercas Las penas dormirán La luna brillará Para los dos

Love 02:13
Love is like a spinning carousel Takes you for a ride unparalleled But it's over far too soon and then You pick yourself back up again Love is like a floating leaf in fall Riding high with not a care at all But before you know you've hit the ground It ends this way, so I have found Was love ever meant to be like this? Just a fleeting night, a stolen kiss? But if the game's supposed to be this way I'd rather not even play Love is like a pretty flower in bloom Radiant colours from the light in June But the cold arrives and then it dies And then it's time for the goodbyes Was love ever meant to be like this? Just a fleeting night, a stolen kiss? But if the game's supposed to be this way I'd rather not even play I'd rather not even play

Little girl you know that I've been watching you Trying hard to catch my baby's eye Since the party started you've been after him And I can see you want to steal my guy And it's kind of fun to watch you try So keep on dancing little girl Keep on dancing little girl 'Round and around now little girl Keep on dancing little girl You're only wasting time, he's all mine He loves me, keep on dancing, little girl You think you're going to take his love away from me Just because you dance the way you do Don't you see he hasn't even looked your way So you can try until the night is through But baby he's not going home with you So keep on dancing little girl Keep on dancing little girl 'Round and around now little girl Keep on dancing little girl You're only wasting time, he's all mine He loves me, keep on dancing, little girl Keep on dancing, little girl Keep on dancing, little girl Keep on dancing, little girl

I'm going down to the Sycamore tree I bet you won't be far behind me Follow me down to the Sycamore tree Oh baby that's where you will find me Shh, don't make a sound It's our secret we have found Let's go down to the Sycamore tree Where there's nobody else around Take me down to the Sycamore tree I want to feel your arms around me Kiss me under the Sycamore tree I want to feel your love surround me Shh, don't make a sound Let's keep both feet on the ground Let's go down to the Sycamore tree Where there's nobody else around

Ghost 02:19
I see your face there before me Like a shadow of my past A ghost of yesterday I feel your arms wrap around me Like a shawl across my shoulders The colours turn to grey And I wonder where you are? I hear your voice all around me Like an echo in my mind A song from yesterday I see your smile in the window Like a permanent reminder A love that slipped away And I wonder where you are? Where you are? Where you are? Where you are?

Put a shell necklace ‘round my neck The one you made While I lay on my bed With closed eyes Dreaming about a party in the night Looking at your smiling eyes White lace straps On my shoulders, that wait For your hands Dreaming about a party in the night We lit a bonfire on the sand There’s no one there And we know that we have Love to share Dreaming about a party in the night

Créeme 02:41
Son palabras nada más Nada más te puedo dar Yo quisiera que me comprendieras Créeme, no llores más Yo te quiero de verdad Son palabras pero son sinceras Cuando estoy muy sola me imagino Tantas cosas bellas para ti Pero cuando siento tu mirada Ya no encuentro nada que decir Créeme, no llores más Yo te quiero de verdad Son palabras, pero son sinceras Cuando estoy muy sola me imagino Tantas cosas bellas para ti Pero cuando siento tu mirada Ya no encuentro nada que decir Son palabras nada más Nada más te puedo dar Yo quisiera que me comprendieras

I wish I could stop the way I'm feeling But it's hard when I see you every day My lonely heart's in need of healing But I know my imagination's standing in the way In my mind, we go dancing in the moonlight And I'm telling you of dreams that never end But I only realize it when I stop and count to ten I'm just talking to myself, again I wish I could pull myself together 'Cause I think I'm going crazy over you I can't go on like this forever But I know no one makes me act the way you do In my mind, we go dancing in the moonlight And I'm telling you of dreams that never end But I only realize it when I stop and count to ten I'm just talking to myself, again In my mind, we go dancing in the moonlight And I'm telling you of dreams that never end But I only realize it when I stop and count to ten I'm just talking to myself, again I'm just talking to myself, again

When I go to sleep at night Wish you were here to hold me tight But I'll see you soon I know Your love is enough to help me keep on 'til tomorrow When you leave to say goodbye I feel a tear forming in my eye I don't want to let you go But your love is enough to help me keep on 'til tomorrow Your love is enough to keep me hanging on Your love is enough to help me hold on and be strong Even though you're far away And the hours turn into days Even though I miss you so Your love is enough to help me keep on 'til tomorrow

The songs released so far by Castellon’s Lia Pamina have been marked by, on the one hand, the influences of female voices like Claudine Longet, Astrud Gilberto and Françoise Hardy, and on the other hand, collaborations with important song-writers and producers who have dressed her songs and lyrics. That’s what happened on her debut single with Robbie Leff (Johnny Winter, Alice Cooper, THE CRABS), Roger Gunnarson (PUSHY PARENTS, THE GARLANDS) and Le Prix (PUSHY PARENTS, Kylie Minogue, Sally Shapiro). Her first full-length is sponsored by one of our most-loved names currently on Elefant Records’ roster: Joe Moore (THE YEARNING).

Lia Pamina’s voice and Joe Moore’s songs seem like they were destined to find each other. The sweetness and freshness of the former, and the imagination and fantasy of the latter, all poured into the evocation of a certain sound - music from the end of the 60s and the beginning of the 70s - where we follow them as they visit some of their favorite names, on an album that seems like it was conceived as a journey. Though this album is really conceived as a tribute to love. But let’s take this step by step. Or, better yet, song by song.

“Better Off Without You” begins with the trademark details, so close to other groups that work within the same parameters, like THE SCHOOL and CAMERA OBSCURA: an effective melody, a catchy chorus, and an exquisite result. “Walking Away” is one of the songs that most clearly has Joe Moore’s mark on it: the clavichord, the elegant touches of folk, the romantic halo of a song that the label “chamber pop” doesn’t even come close to describing. “The Boy I Used To Know” seems like it was made to be a part of the “The Umbrella’s Of Cherbourg” soundtrack. “Para Los Dos” surprises us in Spanish; it’s a delicious duo with Carlos René (musician and producer for AXOLOTES MEXICANOS and SAN FRANCISCO), to a bossa beat, evoking that marvelous trio that came together in La Fusa: Vinicius de Moraes, Maria Creuza and Toquinho. “Love” clears everything up: somewhere between THE LEFT BANKE and HARPERS BIZARRE, with love as the undisputed star, as the axis around which any and all motivation that each and every note on the album carries. With a trajectory like this, THE RONETTES and Phil Spector couldn’t be left out, but this time they do it directly, with a magnificent cover of their appetizing “Keep On Dancing”.

“Sycamore Tree” opens the B-side with a trip to the hallucinogenic world that THE BEACH BOYS and BROADCAST inhabit - marvelous, epic, exciting. Someone needs to write a musical dissertation about that bridge and the pizzicato. And all this in barely two minutes. Which is a bit longer than “Ghost”, evocative, like Lynsey De Paul’s most melancholy moments. “Party In The Night” is one of the fruits of the collaboration with the previously mentioned Robbie Leff, whose touches can still be found on this full-length with this delicious song that could have been a part of Françoise Hardy’s album, “La Question”. “Créeme” is an incredible LOS ANGELES cover, as if Jeanette herself had made it her own. Listening to the song and breaking into pieces are one and the same. “Talking To Myself” appeals to intimacy and includes, finally, Joe Moore on vocals. As if it were Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood. And the thing is, this duo could undoubtedly be one of the biggest stories for lovers of those collaborations. The album comes to a close luminously with “Love Is Enough”, which moves forward with a delicate but multi-color echo of soul, and which gives the album its name and reinforces the album’s main idea.

This album is made with sensitivity, doing justice to a title that appeals to love as the driving force and as the inspiration for delicous songs. Joe Moore and Lia Pamina. What amazing news.
